The advent of the 1960’s coined the term “teenagers” were this age group became an integral part of the society unlike the 1950’s. Trend in fashion and clothing bend towards the teenage market were comfort became an important aspect of the attire. These new craving inevitably led to the evolution of the skirt were for the first time it was accepted to go shorter in direct contrast to the 1950’s were it was deemed taboo.

As stated, during that time, the shortening of the skirt arises from the current need or type of activity. Thus, in high energy activities like sports, shorter kinds of skirts are typically seen. The mobility it provides to the women is vital. Now accepted to the general sporting circles, fashion designers took the bold step of incorporating them to the casual woman attire, these includes John Bates, Mary Quant and Andre Courreges.

The mini dress became the talk of the town during Quant’s “mini Bazaar” and other designers like Yves St. Laurent immediately rode the band wagon.

The mini skirt was introduced to the United States by Rudi Gernreich.

During the 70’s, ‘maxis’ or skirts that run its full length returned. In an ironic fashion, the women who drive for changes in this era are pushing against the mini, the usual icon for women’s liberty back a decade before. The mini dress are commonly attributed to the lowering the status or perception of women towards the society.

The minis returned in full and increasing force during the 80’s. Along with constant exposure from media of various sorts, film, theatre, TV and musicals. Many musicians wear minis to draw further attention and interests, these include super stars like DeBarge, Madonna (‘Like a virgin’ video), group ‘Pepsi and Shirlie’.

Now, with all the possible types, colors and styles, it continues to grow bigger. Any possible occasion has a perfect mini dress that can come with it, yes, even in wedding events.

Men’s Vegan Summer Shoes

It’s finally summertime. Sand and sun, cool water, gorgeous skies and lots of fresh air. It’s a beautiful time of year… a welcome season for those who are exhausted by the harsh climate of winter and ready to move on from the ups and downs of spring. This is the time of year to enjoy being outdoors and having all the fun you can. With so much activity, however, you want to stay cool, especially in the outdoor heat.

Cool and comfortable in the summertime often means wearing as little as possible in the way of clothing and keeping that clothing as lightweight as possible. You want your skin to be able to breath underneath that material. Otherwise, you will be running as fast as you can for the nearest air conditioner. Most people have a full closet of summer clothing – shorts and t-shirts – but have you given much thought to what’s on your feet?

In the summer, it is both fun and comfortable to go barefoot. Who wants their feet shoved inside some enclosed shoe with a pair of socks in the sweltering heat? Since going barefoot is not always safe and is often not allowed in some places, the next best thing is summer shoes: sandals, flip-flops, or whatever your style choice may be.

Most men and women have a pair or two of summer shoes amongst their footwear. However, if you’re a man in the market for men’s summer shoes, there are a lot of options on the market these days. You could run right out and buy any old pair to get your feet through the summer season, or you could consider your choices carefully.

These days, it is hard to avoid being somewhat conscious of such things. After all, with the increasing popularity of living a “greener” lifestyle, more and more people are seeking out earth-friendly products, and they are becoming more widely available. If you consider yourself an Earth friendly guy, you can reflect this belief in your choice of men’s summer shoes.

Men’s vegan summer shoes are the perfect fit! Made from natural plant fibers or synthetics and often employing recycled materials, no animals are harmed in the making, of these shoes.

The materials are made to stretch and breath, making your feet comfortable all summer long.

Men’s vegan summer shoes come in the same styles, designs and colors as mainstream shoes. There are even shoes made to look like leather and other fashionable materials, but no animals have to suffer for vegan shoes.
